FASHIONS FINEST AFRICA AWARDS: NOMINEES LIST + HOW TO VOTE

As the Fashions Finest Africa Epic Show draws near the excitement is in the air as the organizers of the fashion weekend extravaganza make final touches to ensure that the event is one to remember.

The Epic Show is a three-day event running from Friday 25th May to Sunday 27th May 2018, at The Balmoral Convention Center, Federal Palace Hotel, Lagos.

Asides the runway show, exhibitions and conference; the Fashions Finest Africa team would be hosting the first and most prestigious all fashion awards in Nigeria. The essence of the awards is to celebrate those who have made a mark in the fashion industry.

From time immemorial a lot of people have changed the African fashion industry in many ways and the impact they make or have made have not been well recognised or appreciated. At Fashions Finest Africa we want this to change and this is why we have decided to debut the Fashions Finest Africa Awards.

There are 22 categories and 6 of the categories are open for people to cast their votes for who they think best fits while the remaining 16 categories would be properly vetted by our carefully selected judges whom have been selected based on their exploits in their chosen fields and they would choose the final winners.

The fashion extravaganza will kick off on Friday Morning with a Fashion conference where those who matter in the fashion industry and government will take on panel sessions, then later in the evening the prestigious Fashions Finest Awards will take place. We will also play hosts to Exhibitors and our marketplace vendors giving the opportunity to fashion lovers to shop till you drop. The fashion show will continue Saturday and Sunday featuring Student designers, New and Emerging designers and established designers out of Africa.

N2.5 BILLION WORTH OF DISCOUNT UP FOR GRABS IN THE EMILINKS LARGE HEART PROMO

N2.5 BILLION WORTH OF DISCOUNT UP FOR GRABS IN THE EMILINKS LARGE HEART PROMO!!

A lot of people are trying to develop their properties so they can stop enriching their landlords every year but thanks to the state of the economy people tend to manage resources and cost by going for cheap and substandard building materials and this is why we read about houses collapsing every now and then.

The recession has bitten so hard into the average Nigerian’s pocket that it is hard to tell a substandard product from a quality product. At Emilinks our aim is to help make sure that people can afford the most important furniture items without compromising the quality. We have this strong believe that every Nigerian deserves premium quality and affordable products, our products are AFFORDABLE and of the premium quality. The prices we offer can’t be found anywhere in the world, we are aware of the hardship and we are out to eliminate sub-standard products from the Nigerian market by giving you the best quality at a very affordable rate.


 

 

 

 

 

The MD/CEO, of Emilinks Limited Mr Solomon E. Nwadiogbu is very passionate about his business and his quest to making sure substandard products are no longer in circulation by making sure the prices of products at Emilinks can’t be beaten. When recently asked the secret behind his business and prices, he revealed that he had foreseen the dwindling economy and had planned ahead about 8 years ago and made a long term investment towards it, he further stated that anyone who be tries to compete with him in the area of pricing will go bankrupt in a blink. To prove that we are what we say we are, we would be giving out N2.5 Billion worth of discounts on all doors purchased from us.

Photos from the #CHEFDISHFOODFEST

It was all FUN and GAMES at the #ChefDishFoodFest hosted by Samantha’s Bistro in partnership with YD Agency on the 16th and 17th of April 2017(Easter Sunday & Monday). Guests really made FOOD ART with their various colourful food-themed paintings.
 Kids had fun doing what they know how to do best and adults, not to be left out or outdone, rekindled,channeled into and connected with that inner childlike nature of theirs.

It was really a day to be remembered for all its FUN and FESTivities.
